With it raining today again, and my poor poor legs being what they were, Rob and I played some more rounds of Battlefield 2. I'm really getting into this game. I always was a big fan of Battlefield 1942. I appreciate this new sequel even more so. We usually play as a squad and make our rounds to each capture point via whatever vehicle will get us there fast, usually jeeps. I tend to prefer the Special Forces class of character. It is exciting to run up behind tanks, plant some C4, then run away pushing the detonate remote button. BOOM!
On the downside, I can't run the game at full detail. Even with the recently upgraded Moonshine I'm finding myself running at 1152x864 with the lighting settings at medium. Oh heaven forbid I can't run a game at all high detail settings. It seems in order to do so would require a fairly huge jump in rendering prowess.
Mini! That's right, I am finally giving my old P.O.S. Chevy Corsica the boot! I'm not much of a car guy, so I was able to bear driving my wife's old Corsica for the last two years while we got our house settled. I hate that car. My old Beretta was in such bad shape that the Corsica was a better car of the two. So I donated the Beretta to charity and grinned and bared driving the white beast. Lesson: You don't pick crap cars, they pick you!
Unfortunately I have to wait about 7 weeks from now till I actually get my Mini. I had to custom order the one I wanted from the factory as the dealer didn't have exactly what I wanted in stock. It will be a loooong wait. We can just stare at this picture till then right? Nah, that'd be pretty psycho even for me. 😉 I opted for the hyper blue metallic paint, with a black roof, and black mirrors. There will be black bonnet stripes on the hood as well. The one add-on I wasn't willing to go without is the moon roof. And thankfully it's HUGE! I also added the 16" 5 spoke performance tires. Karen is never big on tires, but the guy in me could't allow going with the stock tires. Sacrilege! I actually have something other than the usual games and tech on the brain. Don't worry, I won't go all nuts and add British Union Jack flags everywhere now.
